Dear Dr. Who,
Hey Ben, it's Ricardo again. Sorry to plague you with bad news, but there's bad news: my wife just found out that I was her husband in disguise this entire time. All my money is tied up in her banking account, and she just took my name off of the account because of the aforementioned reasons. I had originally planned to disguise myself and trick her into having sex with me so I could then threaten to blackmail her husband with the information, but she was too smart for me and caught onto my scheme. I blame the cats, because if I would've never let them out of the refrigerator, they wouldn't have leaked my plans to the postman, who (as I suspected before) WAS in fact spying on me!
Anyway, sorry I can't help you out with your money thingy, but the cops have one of those electric shock collar things on me and they said if I try to talk to a Nigerian Asian man, I will be thrown into prison. This is a risk I cannot take, as I gained a bad reputation in prison for "The Bendy Spoon Incident." I hope you have luck finding somebody else to help you with your money transaction and I hope your war-torn country of Nigeria / Asia soon finds peace like my native land of Israel.

Poor Dr. Ben. I had used and abused his trust for days. If anybody out there wants me to shoot myself for this disgusting betrayal, feel free to send me your bank account information so I can use it to purchase bullets. I'll give you 20% of the money in my will, I swear!
TOTAL WRECK - crazy-eyed hound is covered in cobwebs, has a vespiary on back, graffiti on side and savage thirst for boat fuel. Frankly, I'm in over my head. He's in room 115 at Motel 6, yours free. 555-2851
Yes, it's the perfect form for surviving a car crash. But it's also the perfect form for so much more, like surviving the trauma of reading any news headline in 2016.
